How interesting it is that Martin Luther nailed his thesis to the door of the Castle Church in Germany on October 31, 1517, 500 years ago. The number five is redemption, grace and favor, while hundred means complete, whole, blessings, & the glory of God. I believe that we are on the road to redemption & the reformation has begun. As we carry forth the gospel, we will see the prayer of Jesus made manifest. Let’s manifest God’s will on the earth through our declarations in prayer.
As we carry forth the gospel, we will see the prayer of Jesus made manifest. Let’s manifest God’s will on the earth through our declarations & prayer. As stated in the Reformation Manifesto 2017
As the Church of the 21st Century:
We acknowledge that Jesus Christ is our savior and Lord and we serve him first and foremost.
We declare that the word of God is the standard upon which we shall conduct our lives and we will carry that standard into every arena of life God leads us into.
We Believe that we have a biblical mandate to pray for all those in authority, regardless of political party or persuasion, so that the decisions they make will be the best for all citizens of our nation.
We believe in the sanctity of life – that all individuals have the right to life from the point of conception to death; therefore, no one has the right to take the life of another person through crime, abortion, euthanasia, or assisted suicide.
Additionally, we believe that the qualify of life for every individual matters; therefore, we believe in addressing systemic issues like poverty, racism, and human trafficking, as well as advocating for biblically-based systems of education, healthcare, justice economics and government.
We believe that God entrusted humanity with the stewardship of the earth, therefore, we believe we have a responsibility to properly care for the environment and wisely use our natural resources.
We believe that God intentionally created human beings as male and female; therefore, the gender identity we are born with is not a mistake and is unchangeable. Additionally, we believe that God created men and women as equals; therefore, we believe in addressing systems, doctrines, and practices that treat women as inferior or valuable.
We believe that the creator of the universe, almighty God, has endowed these rights and responsibilities to all individuals.
We believe that every person has the right to an education in order to fulfil their God-given potential; therefore, we seek to establish educational systems that not only provide solid job skills, but also promote character development and critical thinking.
We believe that marriage between one man and one woman is the biblical foundations of the family. We acknowledge that many families have been fractured, therefore, we seek to support and promote wholeness for every parent desiring God’s best for the children.
We believe every person belongs in the fellowship of a family, regardless of age or marital status; therefore, we actively engage in building community and connecting the generations. We believe that every child has the right to a family and that adoption is the option to abortion.
We believe that government is given by God to serve the people; therefore, we believe it is the right of every citizen – regardless of race, gender or economic status – to elect to public office those who w ill govern them.
We believe that Christians should not shrink back from serving in elected and appointed government offices, as this brings peace and justice to the land.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the one true God, the Creator and owner of the world. Every individual has the right to hear that Jesus is God and needs to personally accept Him as Savior.
We believe it is the role of the church to steward His world and represent His kingdom therefore, it is the right of al people to have the freedom to share their faith in every institution of society.
We believe that biblical character and ethics are essential for the operation of righteous business to produce wealth. We believe it is the right of every purposeful work with adequate provision; therefore, we believe we are called to eradicate systematic corruption and poverty.
Arts & Entertainment:
We believe that arts and entertainment are the means of celebrating our Creator and His creation.
We believe that arts and entertainment can provide rest and enjoyment, in addition to being an expression of the culture, and should be consistent with biblical worldview; therefor, we are committed to developing such expressions and fostering space for godly artists and entertainers to cultivate their gifts.
We believe it is the role of media to inform, educate, investigate and report on issues related to the establishment of the righteousness and justice in society.
Fair and accurate reporting of the truth is essential for this to occur; therefore, we believe it is our right to freely express a biblical world view through all media outlets and to disseminate information without censorship.
